We practice sustainability at the farm. Crop rotation, use of drip irrigation and re-using the flower water each week are some of the ways we are being kind to the earth.
We are currently sold out of our harvest boxes for the 2017 season.
We have 1 beautiful flower share for the season available. Please email Lorrie at shadymaplefarmcsa@gmail.com if you are interested.

Our harvest boxes are on Tuesdays with pickup between 4:00 - 6:00 pm at the Farm. 8005 Portland Rd. N.E. Salem, Oregon.

Week 10, Tuesday July 30, 2013

Beautiful morning glory on the gazebo.

The blooms try to face the sun.
These girls help out in many ways. 
Even with her arm in a cast she is feeding 
her sister when she isn't picking.

Bright sun, fully open morning glory.

Such vibrant color.

Sisters picking the cherry tomatoes.
Taste testing is almost mandatory!

Anna and her two oldest cherubs 
bring in a cart full of produce.

Onions and beets.



Lemon cucs and slicing cucs.

Taste testing among the very tall 
greenhouse tomatoes.

Thumbs up on the multitude of lemon cucs from the field.

Grams makes the beets all tidy. 
She is good at that!

Taking a break. Hi!!

Dahlias. 

A bee on the statice. It is bigger that some of the flowers.

Honeysuckle getting ready to bloom. This plant was moved from Jewell, Oregon (Dad's home town) to here in 2012. 

Clematis.

Many colors of statice. These dry well, too.

The day is winding down. You can always tell when the morning glory start to close up. Their name says it all.

The "volunteer" sunflower has grown HUGE. Anna has to reach up high to get to the seed head.

More are closing up. See the little pale tube 
to the left of the blue one?


Last blueberries.

Various sizes of zucchini.

A few more summer squash.

Triple Crown blackberries. Oh, they are thornless, too!

The Marys bag up the beans.

Figs. So sweet and yummy this time of year.

Anna made a delicious salad for lunch. 
She tries to keep us healthy.

Crocosmia look like they are on fire.

A bee has folded up its wings and is 
sleeping on this zinnia. It is just before dark.

More zinnias to pick.

A variety of yellow crookneck 
and straight neck squash.

Patty Pan. Reminds me of little individual pie tins.

The yellow ones are Golden Zucchini.

Grams works on her weight training.

A cart full of goodness. So fresh and healthy.

She is strong! And so very willing. 

Zinnias right before dark.
